great location

  • 5 of 5

As planned, the appartment is very well placed close to Westminster. You can go to all the Westminster / Buckingham quickly and easily by foot, and access to all London area easily and quickly with the metro close to the building.

The appartment itself is well equipped and confortable.

If I would have to give one less positive point, it would be about the cleanliness: The appartement was clean but it would required to take time for a deeper cleaning (over the fridge, some spot on the sofa).

As a conclusion we have been very satisfied with this appartment and will recommend it.

Poor service, not what we expected from previous reviews

  • 2 of 5

We chose this property based on previous reviews and descent price, however, we found it to be quite disappointing for reasons below:

1. unable to sleep well due to high traffic noise levels including sirens going off throughout the night,

2. rooms were very hot even with the fans turn on; it was high 70's low 80's during our stay,

3. sofa bed sheets were NOT changed with stains on them so our kids slept without any sheets the first night - clean sheets were not "delivered" until the next day,

4. carpet looks filthy,

5. only one trash can in the kitchen - should at least have another one in the bathroom,

6. the handbook which supposedly had instructions was poorly put together - washer and dryer instructions had basically "use as instructed on the machines" which we could not figure out how to use,

7. service was poor - had to contact them numerous times to get our deposit returned which took 1.5 weeks. I wonder if we would have ever received the deposit if we didn't continue to bother the owner.

The only positive aspect was that the subway station was just few steps away.

Owner's Response: Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Let me address each of your points: 1) The apartment is in zone 1 of central London so there is some traffic noise. The windows have double glazing which do help when they are closed. 2) Your stay coincided with a heatwave in London so it was very warm. The apartment has 3 tower fans. 3) We were informed around 11pm that there was a stain on one of the sheets. All sheets are freshly washed and cleaned but as they are white occasionally a stubborn stain remains. Normally these are replaced but it was missed on this occasion. We always respond as quickly as possible if any problems are identified by guests. 4) The carpets are regularly cleaned and always vacuumed before each stay. 5) The bathroom has a very small floor space so we don't provide a waste bin in there. There is a large waste bin in the kitchen. 6) Sorry that the instructions for the washing machine were unclear. If we had known we could have come around to show you. Guests can always message and receive a prompt response if there is an issue. 7) The security deposit is held by HomeAway (not the owner) and returned automatically 7 days after the guest departure. Allowing for bank transfer times, it normally takes about 7-10 days to appear in accounts. I really do take guest feedback seriously and am an honest owner. On this occasion we didn't meet your expectations so please accept my apologies.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal property and location for a stay in London. A one minute walk (right next door) to the Lambeth North Tube, we had immediate access to public transportation for anyplace we wanted to go. The home is well equipped and was suitable for our group of 4 adults. There are coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and grocery options, each not more than a 5 minute walk. Jaime was very thorough in providing all we needed to know for our London stay, both before and on the day of arrival. I highly recommend this property and I would stay here again.

Repeat Visits Confirm Completely Favorable Review

  • 5 of 5

Our third month-long stay at this wonderful apartment has led us to reserve again for our fourth visit next year. We repeat all of our favorable comments in our previous reviews about the apartment, the location, Jamie and his dear assistant Sherry. While the area was long-overlooked by tourists focused on London north of the Thames, its compelling location has caused it to become a very dynamic area in its own right. There's more excitement in the air here in one of London's "new" inner neighborhoods. We have lived here for a total of 3 months and been out on the street at all hours, without any concerns for our security either in the neighborhood or inside this modern, secure and well-maintained building. We recommend it without reservation.

Great Location! Right on the public transit line

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in London. This location was perfect. We could walk to just about everything we wanted to see and do and anything else was a short train ride away. We would definitely stay here again.

Car: not necessary

The apartment is situated in Lambeth North, a great location that provides a variety of many things to do and see.

In the immediate vicinity of this apartment there are various restaurants such as the Italian restaurant Cotto (www.italiancotto.co.uk) across the road and the delicious Cuban restaurant, Cubana (www.cubana.co.uk). To really submerge yourself in the British culture you could check out the pub, The Horse and Stables (www.thehorseandstables.co.uk) or the the Three Stags (www.thethreestags.london) for the best Sunday Roast Dinner around.

Local street Lower Marsh has a daily street food market as well as many independent retail shops and cafes, bars and restaurants. Greensmiths (www.greensmithsfood.co.uk) is a local supermarket with a real difference – a butcher, a baker, a greengrocer, a coffee specialist, and a wine merchant. The famous Marie's cafe serves traditional English breakfasts by day and home made thai food in the evening.

For those who enjoy relaxing in the park, look no further than Archbishops Park which has a huge children's playground for all ages. The beautiful Jubilee Gardens in front of the London Eye has a park and climbing equipment.

Nearby are many tourist attractions such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel. If you enjoy museums don't miss out on the Imperial War Museum and gardens, but if you prefer theatre, make sure you attend the National Theatre or the Old Vic Theatre. This apartment is only 20 metres from Lambeth North Tube station which gives you easy access to the Bakerloo Line allowing you to have fast transport within and around the city – 10 minutes to Oxford Circus and 20 minutes to Westfield Shopping Centre. A bus stop opposite the apartment allows you to hop on the 148 bus and take a direct trip to Buckingham Palace. This vacation rental is in the centre of London, a perfect place for you to come home to after you explore the city!
